We believe this kaupapa is a unique opportunity for our students to learn that art can be a powerful way to send messages about issues that affect us and our planet. We can work collaboratively and contribute to educating our communities through art. We see this as an opportunity for students to understand that art can inspire people to reflect and make positive changes. Most importantly, we are connected to the Waitematā harbour. We live and play with it. Our understanding of the need to be kaitiaki of this taonga is woven into our school values.
